Verizon has commissioned second and third installments of the teen horror-comedy Snatchers from Warner Bros. Digital Networks’ Stage 13.
Snatchers centers on a high school student who wakes up extremely pregnant with an alien baby after losing her virginity in order to preserve her social status. The sophomore season has kicked off principal photography in New Mexico. The digital show is available for streaming on Verizon’s go90 media brand.
Snatchers is created, written and executive produced by The Olde Money Boyz (Stephen Cedars, Benji Kleiman and Scott Yacyshyn).
“Snatchers is the embodiment of our philosophy at MAKE GOOD Content,” said Paul Young, executive producer and founder of MAKE GOOD Content. “Cedars, Kleiman and Yacyshyn are incredible artists who self-financed a spectacular short film, which led to a series order and a Sundance premiere. When you make good content, good things happen.”
“We’re excited to have Snatchers fans continue the journey with us and Verizon,” noted Diana Mogollón, the senior VP and general manager of Stage 13. “It’s fantastic to see them connect to this fast-paced story that shows relatable characters dealing with the unexpected alien bundle of mayhem. We can’t wait for season two to premiere and continue our partnership with Verizon.”
“We are thrilled to announce that Snatchers will be returning for two more seasons,” added Ivana Kirkbride, the chief content officer at Verizon. “The popularity of the horror genre continues to rise and Snatchers offers characters and plot lines that viewers will find both intelligent and frightening.”
